The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
Our vision for a digital future
New technologies will change the way we invest as well as bring the benefits of investing to more people. Distributed ledger technology (DLT) – a secure way of recording information, such as ownership details, in a decentralised computer network – will be the foundation of a new financial infrastructure.
Over the next decade almost all investments could be converted into digital assets using DLT. This will bring exciting benefits including: faster, safer and cheaper ‘on chain’ trading and settlement; more efficient private markets; assets that are split up into more affordable units – making investments more accessible.
